  • J. Bookwalter Couplet 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This time I was actually at the winery! Bookwalter was the first stop in Washington.A blend of chardonnnay and viognier, this had plenty of the floral bouquet you would expect from viognier with roses in the mix. This was fresh and light with no oak at all. Well balanced with wonderful notes of lemon, green apple and honeysuckle, this was enjoya... Read More

  • J. Bookwalter Merlot Columbia Valley Foreshadow 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Part of a Washington tasting trip!This was an interesting one since I have had the 2009. This was high in alcohol (it hits you!) meaning plenty of sugar for the yeasties, making me think it was a warm year. But no, 2010 was a cool year! Just a young merlot I guess. Nonetheless, this had plenty of tannins to go around and pretty bright with notes... Read More

  • J. Bookwalter Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Foreshadow 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Finally got to visit the winery after having a taste in San Diego!With a nose of toasty caramel and blackcurrant, this had layers of tannins, with juicy notes of dark red cherries, walnuts and cigar. Lingering finish of dark fruits. I would not call it smooth but this was enjoyable. Sounds pretty similar to 2009 except for the chocolate and ciga... Read More

  • J. Bookwalter Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Foreshadow 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Had this part of a local J.Bookwalter wine.Good toasty notes of brownies with plum, walnut and earthiness. This lush wine was well balanced with juicy fruitiness and hints of toasted nuts and chocolate. I would love to revisit!I did not realise I already had this before! It was amazing to find similarities in notes!For more on the tasting, pleas... Read More

  • J. Bookwalter Merlot Columbia Valley Foreshadow 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This was part of a local J.Bookwalter tasting.This is a bright merlot which made sense after you realise that 2009 was a warm vintage for Washington. Plenty of lush juicy fruits to go around. It was toasty with a little vanilla. A little too plush for me. The balance was questionable too with a little too much tannins for my liking. For more on ... Read More

  • Subplot No. 26 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This was part of a local J.Bookwalter tasting.This had wonderful toasty aroma with currant, dark chocolate and spice. I was surprised that it was made with all stainless steel! Fruit forward with hints of pepper and good balance of tannins and acid. Medium bodied with dry lasting finish. Good wine that will be revisited.For more on the tasting, ... Read More

  • J. Bookwalter Couplet 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This was part of a local J.Bookwalter tasting.A blend of Chardonnay and Viognier, this wine has a sweet floral nose. It had good flavors of apricot although it was a little too tart for me. It was a little buttery but not smooth. Tart finish with no cream. Interesting note: the two varietals were cofermented (usually blended after fermenting).Fo... Read More
